Hello

Thank you so much for the feedback.

I found a key at http://michiganflora.net/genus.aspx?id=Lamium which is as 
follows:

All four species are natives of Europe, two of them known in cultivation 
and the other two weeds.

1. Corolla ca. 19–26 mm long, the tube curved upward; plants perennial; 
leaves acute and all petioled.

2. Corolla white, the upper lip ciliate with long hairs (at least 0.5 mm) 
and usually pilose above as well; terminal tooth of largest cauline leaves 
prolonged or ± acuminate, often 9 mm or more long.      *L. album* 
<http://michiganflora.net/species.aspx?id=1552>

2. Corolla pink to purplish [albinos rare], the upper lip with hairs less 
than 0.5 mm; terminal tooth of largest cauline leaves less than 9 mm 
long.    *L. maculatum* <http://michiganflora.net/species.aspx?id=1554>

1. Corolla ca. 9–19 mm long, the tube straight; plants annual; leaves acute 
to rounded in outline, all or only the lower ones petioled.

3. Leaves subtending flowers sessile, ascending or at most horizontal, 
slightly broader than long (± reniform in overall outline).   *L. 
amplexicaule* <http://michiganflora.net/species.aspx?id=1553>

3. Leaves subtending flowers short-petioled, reflexed, the blade about as 
long as broad or a little longer.    *L. purpureum* 
<http://michiganflora.net/species.aspx?id=1555>


I am not able to nail down the ID of my plant based on this key. Would it 
be possible to arrive at the correct ID based on my photographs?



Thanks and regards

Alka Khare
